About Jaguar F-Type
Jaguar F-Type is a two-seat sports car launched in 2013. It succeeded the famous E-Type of the ‘60s and the Jaguar XK. It was originally launched as a soft-top convertible with a coupe version launched a few months later. It is pitted against other sports cars like the Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster and Porsche 911.
While the F-Type doesn’t have the good looks as its predecessor, the E-Type, the F-Type has been getting a lot of rave reviews for its good performance on the road. Those who have actually driven the F-Type say that it is one of the easiest sports cars to drive.
Here are the specs of the 2015 Jaguar F-Type:
- Engine: 3 liter, supercharged V6
- Power: 340 horsepower at 6,500 rpm
- Torque: 332 pound-feet at 3,500 rpm
- Fuel Economy Ratings: 20 mpg city driving, 28 mpg highway driving
- Transmission: Eight speed automatic
- 0-60: 3.4-3.5 sec.
- MSRP: $65,000
There are actually numerous engine options for the Jaguar F-Type. The base engine is a 3 liter, supercharged V6 that can produce 340 ponies at 6,500 rpm and 332 pound-feet of torque at 5,500 rpm. Fuel economy ratings are at 20 and 28 mpg for city and highway driving, respectively.
There’s also the 3 liter, supercharged V6 engine for the F-Type S that has more horsepower than the base engine at 380 horsepower. It produces 339 pound feet of torque and its fuel economy ratings are slightly lower than the base engine, at 19 and 27 mpg for city and highway driving.
The F-Type S convertible is powered by a 5 liter, supercharged V8 engine that can produce 495 horsepower at 6,500 rpm and 460 pound-feet of torque at 5,500 rpm. Fuel economy ratings of this engine are 16 and 23 mpg.
The most powerful of the four engines is the 5 liter supercharged V8 installed in the F-Type R coupe. This engine can churn out 550 horsepower and 502 pound feet of torque at 5,500 rpm.
Regardless of the engine model, you can expect satisfactory performance from a Jaguar F-Type. The 550-horsepower engine can move the car from standstill to 60 miles an hour in less than four seconds. Top speed is around 186 miles per hour.
All F-Type models have the Dynamic Mode that increases throttle response and steering weight. For better grip and response, the S and R models even have adaptive dampers.
Exterior and Interior
Instead of copying the design of the E-Type, the Jaguar team came up with a new and modern shape. The sloping roof and rear glass of the coupe provide a wider look for the F-Type from behind, even if it has the same dimensions as that of the convertible. There are spoilers in both the convertible and coupe that pop up when the cars zoom past 50 miles per hour. The coupe’s spoiler, however, is narrower and taller which hamper rear visibility. But that is probably the only miss that Jaguar’s team had in an otherwise excellent job in crafting the design for the F-Type.
The interiors are also very interesting. There’s a wide console in the middle of the cabin that separates the driver and passenger. The high roof of the coupe also means there’s sufficient headroom for drivers who are tall enough to be playing in the NBA. Legroom up front is also pretty adequate.
There’s a huge, attractive TFT display placed between the two gauges. The infotainment screen has a simple interface. And the seats are covered in luxurious leather.
Aside from the luxurious leather seats, the basic Jaguar F-Type has a high-end audio and infotainment system. There’s also a stop/start system that automatically shuts off the engine during stops, and restarts it quickly once the brake has been released. This feature is effective in saving fuel.
There are numerous options for enhanced performance or more luxuries. There’s the Dynamic mode that improves steering, throttle, and transmission for enhanced driving experience. Motorists can also upgrade the brake with a $12,00 carbon ceramic matrix brake that is worth investing in if they intend to use the Jaguar in the race tracks. Plus there’s a 12-speaker audio system offered as an upgrade.
As in the case of most sports cars, the Jaguar F-Type is not evaluated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
But it does have adequate safety features like air bags, four-wheel ABS, four-wheel disc brakes, brake assist, electronic stability control, blind spot monitoring, traction control, and rollover protection system.
The F-Type coupe can be had for a price of $65,00 with the mid-range F-Type S fetching $77,000 and the high-range F-Type R at around $100,000. The F-Type is a lot cheaper than the Porsche 911, but it is more expensive than the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. Still, the Jaguar F-Type is a sports car any motorist would love to have.
